Nathan - You make a great point. The thing that annoys me is that PennDOT will replace this bridge with their generic bridge with no character or visual appeal.

The old bridge could be used as a fishing pier, photographic spot, tourist attraction, whatever. Granted, US 62 is pretty scenic in that area, but why not leave the bridge there for a nice visual?

Posted June 26, 2017

The bridge still stands - I took additional photos of the bridge today.

Posted June 25, 2017

I apologize for the photos as I was rushed for time coming back from training in St. Mary's. I usually take a more diverse set of photos, but I got obsessed over the condition of the railings.

Please forgive me. :)

George - It will be torn down. From my pictures of the original bridge, it's glory days are in the past. It's a real shame as I love these kind of bridges.

Work has begun on installing the new bridge - per the attached article, they are installing the new piers about 100 feet from the existing bridge. Detours won't begin before July 5, 2017.

Breakneck Bridge (Pennsylvania)
Posted May 2, 2017

I messed up; when I took pictures on April 11th, I thought I was photographing the Eckert Bridge when in reality I shot the Breakneck Bridge. I've moved the pictures to the correct bridge. Please accept my apology for the error.

Posted April 15, 2017

This bridge is beautiful!! I love the look of it. Sadly, it looks like fire claimed it.

Art -

Yeah, after thinking about it you're right. If I happen to come across photos of the original bridge I'll create a separate entry. For now, I guess I can leave the fact that this is the second incarnation of the bridge and whatnot in the description.

Thanks for the essay Sherman Cahal. I grew up not far from there and passed it about 100,000 times in my youth.

Piney Creek Bridge (Pennsylvania)
Posted December 29, 2016

George -

There is no tunnel is this section of the township. The land slopes down to Piney Creek which with the trees may give the appearance of a tunnel. However, if you look up closer to the Clarion River (north from this location), you'll see the photos I took of the Clarion Trestle at:

http://bridgehunter.com/pa/clarion/bh73987/

There is a tunnel on the south side of the Clarion River, the trestle over the river, and then another tunnel on the north side of the river. I took pictures of the south tunnel and trestle back in July but never got a chance to check out the northern tunnel. It was a rather notable bridge in its day but I was surprised there was nothing on it, so I created the page. Amazing, a girl fell from the bridge in the 1980s and (surprisingly) lived. It's a party spot for teenagers and college kids. There's a hole in the middle of the span from some idiots building a fire there.

I have other photos of the area on my Flickr album at:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/40617440@N06/albums/7215767070...

which are more than welcome to view.

Piney Creek Bridge (Pennsylvania)
Posted December 28, 2016

I walked off Piney Creek Road to the left of photo #1 and down to the creek. The shot you see is part of the old railroad line that runs across the other half of the road and across the creek. I couldn't remember how to get there and was pressed for time. If I get a chance in the next couple of days, I'll take pictures.

The railroad bridge is about 100 yards south of where the old bridge was.
